So I got my glasses back and I can see again. Just about. Or as good as I have in recent times. Auld age and all that. Next time I have to get a pair then I’m going for something a little more robust in order to try and head this kind of thing off at the pass in future. Accidents happen. Particularly when you’re having too much fun. It comes with the territory. In addition to this, I think I went a wee bit overboard with the haircut. As my amigo types know, there's a big hole been worn in the back of what used to pass for a mane.
"The gress disnae grow (rhymes with wow) on a busy street" was a favourite war cry of an old work colleague, no longer with us. True, but it's also unlikely to appear on fallow ground. Anyway, the weather is a wee bit inclement and I'm feeling it so time to disturb my wooly hat methinks. At least until I get acclimatised. I'm about to try and get a wee list of stuff together that you ought to know about. Trouble is that my ability to compile and cut and paste is a wwe bit gubbed but let's see what happens.
I am indebted to Mr Duff who tells me that there's a James Ellroy event at GFT in Glasgow on Thursday. And furthermore that Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Birds are at The Captains Rest on November 26th. Time be marching the heck forward alright.
